Here are a few players that we think everyone should keep an eye on as we have seen some major game changing ability here and there and this Summer could really continue to help build a solid foundation for their next level aspirations.
According to Otavio’s Instagram and Twitter handle he has been offered by NJIT a school that has been after Utah players for some time now. Otavio has had to play the 4 at the high school level at times but he is just a big guard that can make easy work of small defenders down on the blocks. When he is out in the perimeter he can really shoot the ball. Really like how he does not settle for jumpers because he is very effective all over the floor and being able to showcase that variety multiple level scoring is important for that growth and development. He has had a solid Spring and he can really build on this offer and try and continue to sharpen his skills.
This kid is an interesting prospect as he plays on one of the best teams in the country when it comes to club ball. He is skilled 15 feet and in and he can also stretch the floor with timely shooting from deep. He would be an ideal prospect for a LM team around the country but if he wanted to stay local he could really get an offer to walk-on or get a chance to earn a scholarship at one of the local HM programs in the state. Schools like Snow and USU-E should be all over him as he can. help both of those programs at that level. A lot can happen for this kid as he is a high academic prospects.
AJ is a smart high IQ kid that comes in the game and does work. He plays defense and works hard. He has a great motor that you can see on both ends of the ball. At ICS he was able to really be on the ball and work hard to get buckets and now on a different squad you can see that he lets the game come to him. I am sure he will get run at Judge Memorial even with a few transfers coming in. The kid can score from deep, he can take it off the bounce and score in the mid-range and also relocate and he is a solid slashing guard that can score at the rim.
You haven’t heard much of Ike this Spring because he has been nursing a hurt foot. If he is back 80% in the Summer he is better than most in his position across the state. He is a high flyer that can elevate and finish. He is defending better and he can really change things with his shooting. He might seem like he is coming out of nowhere but it is mainly because he hasn’t played a lot. Look for him to make some noise when he is back.
Heath will likely be running the PG next year at Cedar Valley and he has a few running mates where he can play a two man or three man game with that could be really effective. With that quickness and burst he has he can get some separation and he can also draw another defender and create easier looks for him guys. He is a kid to really watch this summer as well.
